A power-endurance line on shiny but positive edges up the left hand side of the New Quarry. The crux is low down and the moves get gradually easier as height is gained, but it's pretty sustained and those moves don't feel easy on the RP. The main hurdle to climbing this route is persuading your head that you feet will stick to the heavily polished rock.

After clipping the final bolt, you can either stay left and make a fingery move up to the arete, or span rightwards into the finish of Dinosaur Beach.


The second bolt line from the left of the quarry, up the blank, shiny wall.


5 bolts, 2-bolt lower-off
